Bill Nye sheds light on solar flares, eclipses, sunspots, fusion, and solar energy, and visits an enormous solar energy farm outside Sacramento, California, to demonstrate how the sun is the source of energy for all living things on Earth. The sun is one of those things young students tend to take for granted, perhaps complaining when it's too hot, or that it's too gloomy when cloud cover obscures its light. Under the Science Guy's tutelage, the sun should get a little more respect. In Bill Nye the Science Guy: Sun, Bill Nye harnesses all his energy and power to explain why the sun's activities are so important to humans and to all life on Earth. Puns and jokes abound, as usual, as he illustrates how solar flares, sunspots, and the sun's nuclear fusion processes enable life forms to exist on Earth.
